Madden simulations

I ran a round of this weeks playoff games with Computer Vs. Computer in Madden.

Game 1: Ravens 34 Colts 20
Game 2: New Orleans 40 Philly 14
Game 3: Seattle 24 Chicago 20
Game 4: New England 22 San Diego 19

My Philly and San Diego games were kinda screwy though because I'm using an updated verison of Madden 2006. (Updated rosters with rookies and depth charts but still an outdated verison of Madden) but player ratings for Garcia and Rivers still suck. I think Rivers threw like 8 INT's in the Bolts/Pats game. The scary thing was San Diego still only lost by a FG!

So we will see how close to reality these really are... The Seattle Chicago game was probably most realistic. Although I think SA had like 200 rushing yards which was a joke.

The biggest problem I see with those, is I don't think the Ravens put up 34 on Indy

Yeah actually 14 of the 34 were set up by key turnovers. One was an Addai fumble deep in their own territory that Ray Lewis scooped up and ran for the 10 yard TD. Another was a Manning interception late in the 2nd half that set up the gimmie J.Lewis score.

So really it should have been 20-20 at the very least.

My biggest problem was how freaking easy SA found running room vs the Bears. I think at the end of the game he had like a 6.9YPC average 225+ yards. There were huge holes left and right. It looked like he was playing vs the Colts without Bob Sanders or something...

I did the same thing with the Hawks Cubbies game and had similar resulte. Hawks won 23-18, and SA had something like 180 and a td on 30 carries. Maybe its a sign. ;-D

I was bored so I decided to do my own round of simulations for these games with updated rosters and such in Madden 07. This is what I ended up with:

Chargers 24
Patriots 7

Both Brady and Rivers had a TD and 3 INTs. Tomlinson had 174 total yards (131 rushing) and 2 TDs.

Colts 25
Ravens 24

This one had Jamal Lewis having a big day at 164 yds rushing at 5.4 ypc. Indy was down 24-9 going into the 4th but scored 16 in the fourth to win the game.

Bears 26
Seahawks 14

Both teams had good days running the ball but there ended up only being 1 turnover in the entire game and that was a lost fumble by Seattle.

Saints 32
Eagles 29

This one had both teams playing pretty well. Garcia threw 2 TDs, 1 INT while Brees had 3 TDs, 2 INTs. Brees threw a TD on a game-winning drive with :47 left in the game to win.

Of course there will be things wrong with it, but it's always fun to see what comes out. I think it was right about a couple things though, the Indy/Baltimore and NO/Philly games will probably be very close hard fought games that go down to the wire. I think the NE/SD game will likely be more high scoring than that but oh well.

Your's are way more accurate. What's with Snipers? I mean 40-14 is a little absurd.
